The driving shoes have recently become a must for the warmer months, the lightness combined with a casual design makes them a great choice for a stroll downtown. However, most brands like Tod’s or Car Shoe aren’t very price worthy if you look at price versus sustainability. If you’re using them for driving they might last a few seasons, however if you use them on a regular basis they will probably wear down quickly.

An alternative for those of you looking for a more price worthy option is Italian brand Il Gergo, they have quite a nice range of driving shoes, at 130€ it’s easier to motivate a purchase. Of course you cannot compare the leather quality with e.g Car Shoe, however the rubber sole is probably just the same and that’s where you’ll see them wear out quickly. 

I might just order myself a pair, I’m guessing they won’t last long though but they sure look nice!
